I don't live in South Africa anymore but I did contribute to a medical aid last year for 5 months. Plus I have an investment that has earned interest. I never earned any other income in South Africa, only in the country that I live in now. If I want to file my tax return I would only need to fill in the medical aid contributions and my local interest. On the first page of my tax return it does not allow me to create a form where both medical aid contributions and local interest appears. If I cross that I was unemployed and that I never received income then only the medical aid line appears. And if I cross that I was unemployed but received income then only the interest line appears. What do I need to do so that both sections appear on my return?

How much was the interest earned and how old are you?

I am 37 years old and the interest earned is a little over R15000.00

Tax will not be paid on this amount as it is under the interest threshold as taxable, but you should be able to include this amount if you click unemployed then yes to interest and yes to other incomes and expenses. Else you can do it via TaxTim and we will take care of it for you.
